Category 10 airports

Hi all

I was just wondering, with MAN now a category 10 airport (able to handle code F aircraft and a 'destination airport' for the A380, it says only 17 of these are worldwide. Where are these?

Ill start with a few:

London Heathrow, Manchester, Paris CDG, New York JFK, Dubai, Bangkok, Sydney, Hong Kong, Beijing, Melbourne, Auckland

Am I right in thinking STN is now an official Category 10, or is it just able to handle code F aircraft on an irregular basis?

I'd guess Singapore as well, seeing as SQ has a few of the beasts
